Cover Reveal: Shannyn Schroeder

Two ambitious people team up to prove themselves to their families—and find there may be more to their partnership than just business…

Elizabeth Brannigan is determined to show her father she’s capable of running the family business. Saving his struggling Chicago bar seems like the perfect project. But she’ll need a little help dealing with the rough crowd. Who better to assist her than the handsome co-owner of a thriving Irish pub? Of course, with so much work to do, there are bound to be a few late nights…

Colin O’Leary’s father passed away before he could prove to him that he wasn’t a screw-up. Now he wants to show his brother he’s responsible enough to own a bar of his own—and Elizabeth may be able to help him. But when their professional aspirations clash, tempers—and passions—flare. Are they mature enough to mix business with pleasure—or will they have to choose between the two?

Seeing Red by E.L. Esch #giveaway

What would you do if you lost five years of freedom? If everything you'd ever known was torn away from you, all because the one person you counted on to save you didn't come through?

This is the cruel reality for Gabriel “Red” Thatcher, convicted at age nineteen for the murder of his father. Now twenty-five and eight months out of prison, Red has nothing to his name and no one to help him. He is carrying close to him a rage hotter than white flames. Had his sister just testified on his behalf in court, he could have been spared the horrible things that happened to him in the doghouse. Things that'll make him never look at intimacy the same way again.

Red can't take swallowing his bitter rage alone anymore. Unable to kill the growing loneliness and ire with time, he heads into the Flower District in search of a gay bar to drown his sorrows. There he meets the bubbly, easy-on-the-eyes Silo Winters.

When Red learns that Silo did three years in prison for an accidental oil fire, he brings Silo home, not so much for a wild romp as to relieve his aching loneliness. Besides if anyone will understand Red's pain it'll be Silo, who's gone through some of the same horrors he has. However, he definitely doesn't count on Silo becoming so much more than a sexy shoulder to lean on. Now, if only Red can learn to let him in.

But ghosts from her childhood make it hard for her to let go of her secret—a secret that could force her to spend eternity in Darkness.
Deceived by the woman he loves, abandoned by the brother he trusts, Matthew Hayes struggles against evil to win the battle for his life. But when he wakes to find Lexie sobbing softly at his side, he makes a heartbreaking discovery. Not only is their love forbidden by the most ancient laws, but she has been keeping an unbelievable secret from him—he has a child.

Stolen Moments by Tara Mills

Ella knew what Neil wanted when he called, what they both wanted. Did she dare? Was an hour of passion worth the lies, broken commitments, and the risk of getting caught? Yes.


Acutely aware she was the only woman in the place, she felt every set of eyes track her walk through the bar. Leaving several stools between herself and the next patron, she hung her purse off the back and used the rung under the chair to hop up onto the elevated seat. The bartender sauntered her way and Ella made her hushed request, "White wine, please."

Video: Jennifer James stops by and chats about her kids!

She just stripped in front of an NYPD detective...

The glow-in-the-dark water at Camp Sunny Woods left Chloe Saunders with the ability to disappear from sight.

Thirteen years later, she uses her “gift” to take out criminals when she can. If she’s got to be part of a freak show, she’s going to do some good while in the buff.

And he’s enjoying studying every luscious curve…

Color blind detective Jacob Greiff smokes to weaken the overwhelming messages his nose sends him. One summer camp trip was enough for him. His priority right now is busting the vigilante leaving burglars tied up with panty hose and women’s scarves.

He thinks he’s hallucinating when he sees a petite, bare foot brunette in an enormous trench coat at his crime scenes because for the first time in years, he’s seeing someone in full color.

He’s not sure he’s buying it, but Chloe sure looks great when she’s “invisible.”

Despite his own supernatural abilities and the raging lust between them, Greiff wonders if Chloe isn’t some kind of nut who gets off on public nudity. She insists she can disappear from view when naked, that he’s the only one who can see her when she’s in the buff.

Their shared past comes to a treacherous intersection when a man shows up at Chloe’s apartment and informs them at gun point it’s time to report for duty—or else.

Interview with Shirley Kennedy

Please welcome author Shirley Kennedy today. She's got a new release from Inkspell Publishing titled Deadly Gamble.

1. Tell us a little about yourself.
My life seems to run in pairs: two husbands, two children, two divorces. Born and raised in Fresno, California, I worked many years as a computer programmer/analyst until I totally burnt out and switched to what I always wanted to do—write novels. Currently I live with my older daughter in Las Vegas, Nevada, just 5 miles south of the famous Las Vegas Strip—very handy when I did my research for Deadly Gamble.

2. What genre do you write?
I’ve always had a fondness for history, so I started out writing Regency romances (Ballantine & Signet). Then I switched to the old west and wrote Heartbreak Trail, a novel about a wagon train.  I just completed another wagon train romance titled Wagon Train Cinderella, a title which is either wonderfully descriptive or, according to both my daughters, the worst title ever created on this planet and must be replaced.  (I’m undecided.)

The final story in the Dark Musicals Trilogy is now LIVE!

Hyde, the final book in the Dark Musicals Trilogy is available now!

Q&A with Christie AC Gucker on her book, The Purple Heart

Today I have Christie AC Gucker joining me. I've had the pleasure of reading THE PURPLE HEART, and it's one that will touch your heart. Now, let's get to know her a little bit better.

1. Tell us a little about yourself
I’m your basic full-time working mom, married with two girls. Love my kids and my family so much and every thing that I do is inspired by them. I am all about sharks. LOVE them. They are my greatest fear so I study them all the time. I absorb everything I can possibly see or read on them. It’s what my next book which releases this August, Pacifically You, is about. I also love anything scary. I am a huge Stephen King fan and it there’s a scary movie out, you can bet I’ll be watching it. I have worked in Advertising for over 20 years and I am a degreed artist and a musician.

2. What genre do you write?
 I right adult fiction. Some might refer to it as Romance but my stories have a lot of substance to them so there is always an underlying message in them. Like this book, The Purple Heart, has the theme of PTSD and how the signs can be ever so slight. I worked with Battling B.A.R.E. with this book to help spread the word about PTSD in order to spread the word on how the families of soldiers can get the help they need to understand what their loved ones are going through. My next book, Pacifically You teaches a new demographic about shark conservation!

But not anymore.

I will fight back.
